Some Snippets From Hamilton Island

What's News?

Thought I'd share a bit of the excitement of the last few days with you. 


A group of my stamping buddies, some of my lovely Think Inkers and myself have spent a terrific four days at CraftExpo meeting lots of craft lovers and sharing some stamping and papercraft tips, ideas and inspiration. 

A warm hello if you are one of the people who stopped by our stand, and are visiting my blog for the first time.  (And to all the people who visit this patch of blogland regularly too of course!)

Here's some pics of our stand.  Didn't the girls do a wonderful job of the display posters.


And despite popping my camera in my pocket each day, I only managed to get this shot on Sunday with the team!   The Sunday crew here are Kristine, Nikki, myself and Genna.


I had a lovely day on the stand on Friday too with my Think Ink girls - Kylie, Deb and Caren.   Pop by their blogs to see what they are up to.


Congratulations to Michelle of North Watsonia and Libby from Edithvale who were the lucky winners of our fabulous door prize baskets.  A box of papercrafting goodies will be on its way to you both very soon.  Have fun!


Getting excited now - only 2 more sleeps til John and I head off on the 2010 Stampin' Up Incentive Trip to Hamilton Island.  This wallet arrived in the post a couple of weeks ago with the gorgeous teal bag tags, travel info and itinerary, a little badge since it is my first incentive trip and some tickets to spin the lucky wheel each day while we're away.  They're sitting on my case in the pic. 


Actually it is still an empty case and there's RATHER a lot of packing and tidying up to here now that CraftExpo is over, so I'd best go.  I'm charging up the camera batteries and will bring back lots of pics to share with you.  

A big thank you to all my lovely customers, class gals and to my fabulous team who have helped me earn this trip, and to all my stamping buddies who share ideas, support and friendship.  And I'm feeling quite like Stampin' Up is one of the most fabulous companies to be involved with so big big thanks to Shelli and all the staff.  :-)  While I'm in a thank you sort of mood - wow, big thanks to mum and dad for minding my two munchkins so we can head off on this trip, and to my sister Lisa who helps out so much with my classes.   Wish I could fit you all in my case!

Anyway, we get back Sunday night so if you've got any Stampin' Up questions - I'd love to help you with them next week when we return. 

Have a great week.  OK, off to pack!  And finish swaps!

Cheers, Sue
